Vegan Recipe Ideas for Pancake Day

pancakes with 3 ingredients

INGREDIENTS

  • 200g plain flour

  • 220ml almond/soya milk

  • Aquafaba OGGS 220ml

METHOD

  • Start by pouring your Aquafaba into a clean bowl and whisking until pale and frothy. You don’t need an electric whisk for this

  • Combine milk ingredients and continue whisking.

  • Slowly sift the flour and whisk until your batter thickens and is silky smooth.

  • Let the dough rest in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

  • Over medium-high heat, melt a knob of margarine (1/2 teaspoon) before pouring a ladle of batter into the pan. Using the handle, make sure the pancake reaches the edge of the pan. After about a minute seconds, the sides will be cooked. When you feel confident, flip it over and let the other side cook.

  • Serve with whips of your favorite toppings!

INGREDIENTS

  • 380g plain flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 130g caster sugar

  • 250ml OGGS Aquafaba

  • 7 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • A squeeze of lemon

  • Margarine, for frying Favorite toppings…fresh fruit, maple syrup, melted chocolate…the options are endless.

METHOD

  • Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl

  • Next, whisk your OGGS® Aquafaba in a clean bowl for 30 seconds until pale and frothy, then add the oil, lemon juice and milk.

  • Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, little by little, until you get a smooth and thick paste

  • Rest the pancake batter in the fridge for 30 minutes…sorry

  • Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and add a dollop of margarine. Once melted, add a small ladle of batter to the pan and smooth into a rough round with the back of the ladle

  • Wait for the base of the mixture to set and the top to start bubbling, then flip and cook until both sides are golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is used up. Serve with your favorite toppings!

BEST TIPS

  • For the fluffiest pancakes, and if you have the patience, leave the batter in the fridge for a few hours but don’t forget to stir it before using…

  • The first pancake is always ugly. We just recommend you eat it before anyone else sees it.

  • Keep your pancakes warm at the end of cooking by placing them in the oven preheated to around 70°C.
